Doug French reviews ‘Testament of James’

Saturday, January 24th, 2015

Economist, banker and former head of the Ludwig von Mises Institute Doug French offers his take on “The Testament of James” at http://douglasfrench.liberty.me/2015/01/22/book-review-the-testament-of-james/ .

‘The Black Arrow’ not forgotten

These kids are going places!

Tuesday, November 18th, 2014

Years ago, good-looking young people hoping to break into careers on stage or screen often started out as models, posing for fashion ads or even for record jackets, while waiting to be “discovered.” (James Garner started out modeling bathing suits.)
